These are difficult times for Argentine teams. The economic crisis threatens the armed forces of the campuses. River is immersed in that situation and Marcelo Gallardo suffers because he knows that at any moment there are many players. Several fight over Gonzalo Montiel, Enzo Pérez is seduced from different markets, Ignacio Fernández wants to emigrate and Nicolás De La Cruz is aware of his possibilities. But this Friday was a day of encouraging news for him. Doll: two undisputed headlines as they are Rafael Santos Borré and Franco Armani They warned that they intend to continue in the cast of Núñez.
The first to express their desire to continue were Jorge Carrascal and Enzo Pérez: both rejected offers from abroad. The Colombian understands that he is in a moment of growth in his career and the heart beat the Mendoza midfielder, which is why he rejected a juicy offer from Turkey’s Trabzonspor. And now it was the turn of Santos Borré and Armani. “I enjoy being day to day at River. It is clear that if an offer arrives it will be analyzed, but I know that there are not many better options than River. I prioritize sports over economics. I have no desire to leave now, “declared the coffee scorer on Radio Caracol.
The intention of the River leaders is to retain the 25-year-old Colombian striker for one more time, whose contract expires in July this year. To renew you, Núñez’s team must buy at least 25 percent from him (3,500,000 euros) of half of the pass that Atlético de Madrid still has. Negotiations already exist and the possible income of money from the sale of Gonzalo Montiel would be the key.

Franco Armani’s link with the institution ends in July 2022, but the idea is to extend it throughout the year until 2023. There are also talks. “Armani is going to stay in River for a long time. He never spoke to Gallardo to leave because that is not in his plans, “said Martín Araoz, the goalkeeper’s representative, on Colonia radio. And he added:” The country is in a difficult situation, the decision of each player is very particular. Franco is very well and happy. We are talking and trying to improve your contract. He prioritizes the group and the sporting challenge over money. ”

Why is Armani not even willing to listen to offers? His desire is to play a new World Cup – he cut short in Russia 2018 – and he understands that being in River is the best thing to stay on the radar of coach Lionel Scaloni.
The first week of preseason work passed at River and Gallardo breathes: not only are players not leaving, but many also express their desire to stay.
